Topic: Voltage on acid chloride zinc bath

I have read an article that says that the voltage used on acid chloride zinc bath must not be over 8 beacuse anode baskets corrode

two questions

1 it is the same for nickel?

2 it does apply for barrel plating ?

Re: Voltage on acid chloride zinc bath

I've never had a problem using a high voltage in my nickel baths, both rack and barrel.  The biggest problem with the baskets dissolving is when the nickel anode material gets too low.  I would suspect that the same thing applies in acid chloride zinc.
